Austria report: Winners of the WikiDaheim photo competition 2017 have been announced![edit]

By Philip Kopetzky
The number one picture of WikiDaheim 2017 in Austria!

As avid readers of the CEE newsletter you probably already know about the project WikiDaheim, which also included a photo contest of all pictures submitted, no matter the category. A jury then selected the 10 best pictures out of the 4500 eligible images, which you can find on Commons at WikiDaheim Winners 2017 in Austria.

The winning picture shows the interior of an old post station that was converted into a farmhouse in Meiningen, Vorarlberg. Most of the furniture and decoration dates back to the time around 1900, giving the place as much of a rustic appeal as the outside might hint at. Thanks to Böhringer for this amazing picture!

Thanks as well to all the volunteers involved in judging the 4500 pictures in the pre-jury so that the actual jury only hat around 560 images to go through. Special thanks also to our four jury members who had a very difficult task to accomplish by having to select only 10 pictures.

In order to also acknowledge the other amazing pictures that didn't quite make the cut, here are five pictures to share and enjoy:
